Question about IBM NetVista A30p PC Desktop

2 Answers

Pci something or other

I have an ibm netvista 8310-27u, that one of my neighbors got rid of by putting it on the sidewalk with a free sign on it.

as far as i can tell, the only thing he did to it was add 256mb of ram, and format the hdd.

so i installed win2k on it, and downloaded the chipset drivers from intel, and everything works fine. except for one thing that is still bugging me. when i go to device manager, under other devices, it has one "PCI Device". it also has the yellow circle with exclamation mark on it.

when i tell windows to go online to find drivers, it cant locate any.

when i open the box, there is nothing in the 3 pci slots, nor in the agp slot.

wth is going on here? windows cant find out who the manufacturer is, and lists the location as:
PCI bus 0, device 31, function 3

how do i find out what this is, and how do i make it work in windows, whatever ir does.

    well i tried it like you said, but the results are the same. windows starts up, sees new hardware, goes looking for drivers online, and comes back empty handed.

    i went to intel, and got my hands on every driver for anything that had my chipset on it, and now the problem is gone :)

    i also found out the intel has a much nicer site than ibm/lenovo.

The pci device driver will probably be the pci slot motherboard driver, try right clicking on it and uninstalling, restart the pc and see if it finds the correct driver, unless you have missed off one of the drivers

    It won't find drivers online unless microsoft have the drivers on their database, you have to go to the motherboard manufacturer web site for any drivers, your pc won't check the world for a driver, only Microsoft.

IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop Os Install Impossible


You probably need an OEM version of XP...not that IBM version. If you buy an OEM version, you can use it many computers. A real XP disc will partition, format, and delete partitions on any functioning Hard drive. Don't buy a recovery disc, please. That just sounds WRONG.

A cheaper solution might be a new Hard Drive...but I don't trust your IBM version of XP.

Installing modem


By the looks of your question, it appears you may have an internal PCI modem. If that is the case, please state your PCI modem brand and model. You may have what is called a WinModem or "softmodem" because they were usually US Robotics modems made strictly for windows. They are known to be buggy with their software drivers and hard to install but not impossible. Since softmodems use your CPU's power one solution would be to change to an external modem (since they have their own processor) and save yourself some headaches later on.

Thanks.

USB 2 PCI card installation on IBM NetVista with MS Vista


Lucy,

USB 2.0 cards require 2 IRQs.
  • 1 IRQ supports USB 1.1
  • and the other the Enhanced (USB 2.0) controller.
Installing the USB 2.0 card in a slot that does NOT share an IRQ or shares an IRQ with onboard USB produces the best result. Consult your motherboard manual or online guide to determine which PCI slot is best for you.

You should also try disabling the on board USB support from BIOS setup.

Thanks
Iqbal

PC Card


There is a bunch of "model" numbers for the IBM netvista PC. You didn't menton yours in your question but after looking at a dozen or so I'll bet you have at least one PCI slot free for a wireless PCI card.

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
